Alcohol Event Registration form Frequently Asked Questions

All staff and faculty who are on the exempt payroll are eligible to become Social Hosts. You must complete the Social Host Training session, offered monthly through University Police and Student Affairs, to become a Social Host. Please visit Social Host Training on the University Police website to register for a training. 

Security is required to be present when any students under the legal drinking age are expected or permitted to attend or when more than one hundred (100) guests are expected to attend. 

Security is also required for certain locations in order to make the location private or semi-private to ensure guest safety. Privacy is determined by the ability to control access to the area of the social activity and limit attendance to invited guests only.

Security for an event must be arranged directly with University Police. Please complete an Event Security Request which can be found on the University Police website.

A "Social Host" is a dean, department head, faculty member or staff member who is on the exempt payroll and takes personal responsibility for ensuring that alcoholic beverages are served only to those persons who are of legal age. Such responsibility may be assumed only after completing the Social Host Responsibility session offered through University Police.
